First cruise stop: Napoli (Naples). We were two couples walking the streets of Napoli, without much idea of where we were going, sometimes we looked at the map, and sometimes we just let our instincts, or the smell of food, or a bar with beer, or a beautiful church, guide us. The discoveries were very exciting! The streets were crowded, noisy, and dirty, but everybody seemed happy. The churches and statues were really lovely. This small painting from my journal, shows a courtyard that caught my eye, with the statue of a reclining man, resting in front of apartment buildings with balconies full of flowers. Napoli Statue, watercolor, 4x6" (10x16cm.)
